Titans’ Isaiah Wilson arrested with career off to messy start

Brooklyn native and Tennessee Titans first-round pick Isaiah Wilson was arrested Friday night for DUI.

Wilson, a 21-year-old 6-foot-6, 350-pound offensive tackle out of Georgia, was busted just before midnight in Nashville and had a $1,000 bond posted two hours later, according to Metropolitan Nashville Police. 

The Poly Prep product blew a .107 and .113 after being pulled over, exceeding Tennessee’s BAC limit of .08.

Wilson lost control of his car while doing “donuts” in the intersection, resulting in him hitting a concrete wall, a witness said, according to the release.

“We are aware of the situation,” the Titans said in a statement. “This is not conduct that is indicative of the character of our football team and we are working through details on how to proceed.”

Wilson, who was selected with the 29th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, also drew the attention of police at an Aug. 15 party near Tennessee State University. When authorities arrived at the scene, Wilson contemplated jumping off a second-story balcony to escape, according to a campus police incident report, and was handed a trespass warning.

Wilson has also twice been placed on the COVID-19/Reserve list of the Titans — who are scheduled to open their season Monday night in Denver — and reportedly struggled with his conditioning.
